Sometimes you can do what you want ... or do it your way. And sometimes life has rules.
Today I'm going to the DMV to renew my drivers license. And they have a lot of rules there. Their most popular book, "The rules of the road" details many of them.
And when it comes to renewal, you've got to bring all the right documents. (I was glad I could find that birth certificate. Because as sure as I am that I WAS born, you've got to prove it to these folks.) And, lets see ... social security card (check!), mortgage bill (check!), utility bill (check!) vehicle registration (check!) ...
I've got to make sure I jump through all the hoops at just the right speed in just the right order. And I've got to make sure I COLOR INSIDE THE LINES
And for SOME people ... most of their life is like that.
Is your life like a day at the DMV??
... find a few minutes at the end of the week to kick back with a beer and a hockey game that you're too exhausted to enjoy?
The reason I'm asking is that I'm sure it doesn't have to be that way.
I'm sure ... You can have more of what you want.
Over the last thirty years, I've watched some interesting changes take place in my career as an NLP practitioner and trainer ... and there seems to be a revolution taking place. It used to be that people were coming to see me
because they wanted to "get fixed" and solve their problems so that they could be more normal and "toe the line" like everyone else. They WANTED to follow the rules because they thought it'd get them something valuable.
But NOW people are seeking more creative ways to live and enjoy their lives. Looking for more satisfying and fulfilling adventures. And a few of them are really stepping out and going for it.
Here's an assignment: Find a way today to be creative ... let yourself come alive and come out. And break a
few rules. Especially the ones you've been imposing on yourself.
As En Vogue once said ... "Free your mind ... and the rest will follow"
(So let's put that in the soundtrack for the day.)
So YEP ... sometimes a man has GOT to do what you've GOT to do. And sometimes, you can free your mind and free your spirit ... and live life on your own terms.
